New Las Vegas Hotels
Today you can choose between new, world class mega resorts that have every amenity you can think of; allowing you to pamper yourself beyond your wildest imagination. Who would have imagined that the Hacienda would be replaced by magnificent Mandalay Bay? The Venetian Hotel, with its Grand Canal and gondoliers, sits where the famous Sands once stood. The Aladdin is now the new Planet Hollywood and the great Dunes Hotel, with the famous Sultan’s Table and its ever so busy poker room, was imploded to make way for the Bellagio with its Dancing Waters.

What did they all have in common? At the time, They were all the hottest spot on the strip when they were the newest spot on the strip.

Opening on December 15, 2010, with 2995 rooms, it is the newest hotel and resort in Las Vegas. Originally the Cosmopolitan was going to be mostly condos but with the real estate market taking such a bash it made more sense to turn the condos into hotel rooms. So you will find the rooms are larger than average and are extremely elegant. The Terrace suites have large balconies and modern cooking appliances. All have beautiful marble bathrooms with roomy showers. The brand new furnishings are very tasteful. Cosmopolitan offers a number of different packages that you might want to check out before booking your room.

The Boulevard pool is located on the East Deck, overlooking the Strip. You won’t miss any of the action going on…it is set on several levels full of lounges, daybeds, and upbeat music. You won’t want to miss the movies playing, cookouts, and live musical performances that are held on the pool stage.

There are two other pools available. For a quieter, more private day, go to the Bamboo pool, which is placed in a wide open environment with desert landscaping. The Day Club Pool is actually part of the Marquee nightclub. It features infinity pools with cabanas, three-story bungalows. This pool will debut in the spring. The Marquee nightclub had its grand opening on New Years Day 2011. It features seating around a dance floor focal point, resident DJs, and live performers.

The Tropicana is not a new hotel name in Las Vegas, but even though its been around since 1957 it makes our top 5 due to its $180 million revamp. Today you can truly enjoy a luxury vacation in this beautifully remodeled and redesigned resort hotel. By April of 2011, the last phase will be complete, with the opening of Nikki Beach and Club Nikki.

There are 1880 rooms, newly decorated in the South Beach style, in light tropical colors. These moderately priced rooms come with flat screen TVs, iPod docks, and fluffy bedding. Kudos to the hotel for making them eco-friendly. There is also a luxurious two story suite that is sure to please even the most seasoned traveler. Service has always been good at this hotel.

The renovation included redesigning the casino floor as well as the hotel rooms, convention areas, and restaurants. But the most dramatic highlights will be noted at the new Club Nikki, which will lead into the magnificent pool party area. Similar to its sister, Nikki Beach Miami, it will feature lounge beds, cabanas, dining and VIP bottle service. There will also be a new 24hr center bar and restaurant. Nikki Beach will link the pool to the nightclub. A number of signature events, pool parties, and nightclub events have been planned.

Encore is the newest resort on the strip from Mr. Wynn, from the outside it looks identical to The Wynn Hotel. Encore opened its doors on December 22, 2008; The Wynn Hotel opened a few years earlier on April 22nd, 2005. Between the two of them they hold more five star awards than any other casino/hotel resort in the world. One of those stars is for the luxurious, opulent 2,034 suites contained in Encore.

The casino floor reminds one of the elegant European casinos, resplendent in rich reds, with wide aisles and beautiful high ceilings. Le Reve is their permanent spectacular…a Cirque du Soleil like water show that is somewhat similar to "O".

For nightlife at Encore visit Surrender nightclub and XS, both clubs offer the most upscale nightclub entertainment you could hope to experience anywhere in the world. If your not to partied out the next day try and get down to the Encore Beach Club pool party. For an all-inclusive weekend, you cannot beat this trio…spend the day at the pools on a lounge or day bed, enjoy one of the many the excellent restaurants, and then reserve a table at XS, Surrender or Tryst at The Wynn Hotel. If money is no concern, dine at Frank Sinatra, the Italian restaurant that honors his music, and surrounds you with photos of Ol' Blue Eyes.
